Despite a year that few will miss, but never forget, the artists at TAG have been working creatively and tirelessly throughout this pandemic. We wish everyone a very happy New Year. There is much to celebrate; spring, good health, sharing food and wine with friends and family, dancing, hugging and living in the light.
TAG begins the new year receiving an award for being among the top 100 Legacy Businesses in Frederick County. This award “Frederick County’s Top 50 x 2 Legacy Businesses” will appear in the January issue of the Frederick Magazine. We will display our personalized plaque with great pride and TAG would like to give a big "Thank You!"to the Office of Economic Development and Frederick Magazine for this recognition.

JULIE WAXES POETIC
Julie Maynard, artist and writer par excellence, puts things in perspective for us each month:
Notes for a site specific installation: “X” marks the spot. Sensory details to include: (1) raked light making golden ripples, (2) the dry rattle of sycamore leaves, (3) the bite of water on briefly bared feet. What does it smell like? The Potomac River sliding into winter.
